Patrons' interest is recorded on the borrowed titles at this San Jose Calabazas Branch Library.

This artwork is harness this their diverse interests to compose an on-going choir from the book scanner's data stream. A software of Literal-Music Grammar  converts each letters into Braille and run the Braille dots on a virtue music box. So each patron's interest is exactly reflected on this community composition, all without the lost of privacy or extra commitment from anyone's part. 

The singing is output softly though four negative relief figures carved on this four sides of a granite monolith installed at the front plaza.
